Recycled bicycles make a giant difference in developing countries – Your unused bicycle could help someone in a developing country collect a paycheck, bring home food and supplies to their family, or carry goods to market. For many, owning a bike is a dream and becomes “Vital transportation that leads to a better life,” said Working Bikes Cooperative (WBC) volunteer Brandon Zagorski.

The Chicago based WBC has shipped thousands of bicycles all over the world since its inception in 2001. Thousands more have been requested from partner organizations in Kenya, Angola, Ghana, Peru and Nicaragua. Working Bikes Cooperative puts unused bikes in the hands of people who need them. Working Bikes Cooperative is hosting the bike drive this weekend to fulfill these needs.
